Waking up with a blood sugar of 243 at 4:46am was not how I envisioned my first day at the gym. I stood and stared at the meter, do I take insulin or go to the gym and let the activity solve the problem. Like an idiot I took 1.2 units of insulin had a little coffee a granola bar and off I went. As I got to the gym I was bouncing off the wall and ready to kick some ass. After ten minutes on the bike I felt off and decided to call it quits and go do some weight work for my shoulder. My "coach" showed me some amazing stretches and strength drills. I began the activities and immediately started to sweat. Not from the work I was doing but from my blood sugar plummeting, like a fool I kept going. I figured it was the coffee because my pump read 102 but had two down arrows. I continued to sweat and sat down. Over comes the coach and asks whats up, a simple "blood sugar" was my answer. He knew what that meant and offered me a muffin. I declined and sat there before going to get something to fix the low. I would eventually bounce back but by then it was time to get to work.
I need to get my shit together. I hold myself to a very high standard and I can't explain how angry this morning makes me. I know better, this low should have never happened. The good news is that tomorrow is a new day!! Learn from mistakes and remember that it is all good mental training!!
